Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The structure of this ’04 Costa Russi gives it decades of drinkability, but its beguiling nose will make you want to drink it right now. Succulent red and blue fruits are framed by forest floor, crushed flower petals, baking spices, cedar, truffle and licorice; this is a deeply aromatic Costa Russi. Intense, chewy tannins make this wine one for the long haul, but its sheer expressiveness, balance and seamlessness show even now. The Costa Russi vineyard sits on the lower portion of the prized hillside slope (below the adjoining Sorì Tildìn), so there is a lower altitude and more direct sun, allowing the Costa Russi to achieve more opulence and seductive qualities than the other two crus. Grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for a year in barrique followed by a year in cask.
